For the Chocolate Griddle Cakes
Sift flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a separate bowl whisk buttermilk, melted butter, eggs and vanilla.
Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir just until combined (a few lumps are OK).
Stir in chocolate chips.
Preheat a griddle over medium heat and grease.
Ladle batter onto griddle and cook about 3 minutes, turning to cook another 2 minutes.
Remove griddle cakes to a plate, cover and keep warm until ready to serve.
For the Cinnamon Peaches
Bring butter and maple syrup up to a simmer in a large sauté pan. Stir in cinnamon and peaches and return to a simmer. Serve immediately. (Great over ice cream too.)
